A CHURCH and community centre welcomed the High Sheriff of Cornwall during a visit last week.
Charles Williams visited Tuckingmill's All Saints' Church and Community Centre with his brother, James Williams, Deputy Lord-Lieutenant of Cornwall.
They were shown around the centre by its community development co-ordinator Treve James, MBE, COC, and told about the diversity of work being carried out at the community resource.
Mr James said: "The centre is recognised as a flagship community project in Cornwall and a role model for others to learn from.
"One of the many problems facing community projects and charities over the years is the lack of central government funding, which has not been addressed during my 12 years at the centre."
The sheriff also met members of the Rendezvous Health and Well-Being Social Club who use the centre for their activities.
